    Default Arrested Development in the Dáil

    So we have...

    Buster Kenny - a Milford man should not be seen or heard, blends into the background wallpaper a lot

    Michael Martin - takes charge of the family after crisis, acquiring hop ons

    George Pop Pop Adams - first a prisoner, then a fugitive, emerges as leader of his family, cleared of dealing with Saddam

    Lyndsey Gilmore - nominally married, but could fall into anyones arms

    Oscar Ming Flanagan - smokes a lot of pot

    I would argue though that many of the general population are at the same level as the TDs.
    If you continue to elect idiots in elections, don't be surprised when the result is an idiotic government.

    Michael Martin is more of a Tobias Funke to my mind.

    No, he's talking about the TV series.
